No fibre optic here. Sorry for hijacking... I'm also with Vodafone and in Turvey. Do you see a pattern t...

Apple iPads for the Community College

Apple iPads for Donabate Community College first year students are available in 32GB or 128GB sizes with a ~€100 price difference.

Has anyone bought a smaller capacity iPad previously for use in the school, but regretted it or had problems with schoolwork due to lack of memory?

Re: Donabate educate together and the 9.02 train

I do that every morning. The school is very consistent with timing, they'll go in at 8:45 or very soon after, and there is plenty of time to stroll to the station.

If this is a requirement, its not being applied consistantly in Turvey because the trees cut so far are further away from lights than untouched trees. Where did you get information on this '5 metre' rule?

SuperValu. This Moron didn't have the sense to wear a mask. As far as I could see, he was 'Armed' with a metal bar that looked like a bar from a wardrobe.

They have a Donabate office.


Good luck with finding a good surveyor. Any reports I've seen are mostly a exercise in buck passing.

Re: The Links/Insulation

Read Derek's good advice here:

I feel that air-tightness is possibly more important than the insulation, especially if the house faces the green and has no shelter from the wind.

Re: New Houses at Beresford

If you live in the houses which will be built north of/backing onto Beverton Lawns, how do you get to the schools & Community Centre. Do you have to go all the way anticlockwise around Beverton, or will there be a path through Beverton?

Hello. Any chance the club could move those posters from the railings at the train station car-park exit? They block the view of oncoming traffic.

Thanks!

Free: Rain cover for buggy

No-brand rain cover for childrens buggy. Not worth giving a photo, 'cause it just looks like a giant dead jellyfish. It has no built-in support, so buggy would need an existing canopy (ie not suitable for a MacLaren-type stroller.

Unused.

Please PM me if you'd like it.
